(cytochrome c)-lysine N-methyltransferase
- S-adenosyl-L-methionine + [cytochrome c]-L-lysine S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + [cytochrome c]-N6-methyl-L-lysine
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring one-carbon group methyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[cytochrome c]-L-lysine N6-methyltransferase. Other names in common use include cytochrome c (lysine) methyltransferase, cytochrome c methyltransferase, cytochrome c-specific protein methylase III, cytochrome c-specific protein-lysine methyltransferase, S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[cytochrome c]-L-lysine, and 6-N-methyltransferase. This enzyme participates in lysine degradation.
